The range of training in genetic toxicology – Continuing Professional Development modules, Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Masters – has been developed in response to requests from UK industry and government departments, as well as the UK Environmental Mutagen Society (UKEMS).
The programme provides a unique training niche for the University of Surrey in an area where the UK provides the major leading international companies in the pharmaceutical, chemical and contract research industries. Economic pressures and work commitments make the long-term release of staff for training in genetic toxicology a challenge. This modular training programme meets that challenge.
Participants are often science, medical or veterinary graduates currently working in a toxicology environment or seeking to use knowledge of genetic toxicology in their areas.
